I bought this on October 20th, 2013.  I bought the frig, dishwasher, gas range and over range microwave all in slate.  I really love the color of these appliances.  I read all the reviews about noise and hard to peel off protective plastic.   The frig was somewhat noisy at first ( about the first 6 hours ) but then it quieted down to what I consider a reasonable sound.  I too, like some other reviewers have an open floor plan and used to could not run my dishwasher while watching TV.  The frig is just a slight bit louder than my old one ( 14 years old ) but nothing distracting.  I think some of the other reviews didn't give it enough time initially to cool down completely.  I love this frig. As for the protective coating...I suggest you DO NOT let your delivery man remove it.  First one delivered they dented door and went ahead and removed film and did a lousy job because they were in a hurry.  Second one we took off plastic and took our time and it came off just fine.  The only recommendation I would have is that the inner large frig drawer at bottom of top section was split in two so you wouldn't have to open both doors to access stuff in this larger drawer.  I don't know that I would ever have anything that would take up the entire width of the frig.   So to sum up...Love the frig after just a week and would definitely recommend to others!  Color is awesome and really makes our kitchen appear more upscale!!

I would agree with everyone that has posted a positive comment about the look and space that this refridgerator offers, however, the manufacturing of the product could use some review and tweaking. We are currently expecting the delivery of fridge #6 tomorrow morning because the previous 5 have all had manufacturing defects. The "waves" on the sides because of the lack of insulation or poor production has varied each time and there has been paint missing on the sides of the fridge because it hasn't had the proper amount of time to dry before being moved or boxed. The biggest concern has been with the right hand door hinge. The door at the very top right corner has too much insulation in it causing it to push again the hinge which is screwed in at an angle because the screw holes that were drilled aren't drilled straight down. After purchasing a new home and needing all 6 appliances #fridge, dishwasher, range, microwave, washer, and dryer# we went with all GE. The dishwasher is amazing and the range is great, even the washer and dryer can't be beat but I really think GE needs to look at their production of this new fridge that they recently released. Even the stores floor model where we purchased the fridge has the same defects that we are experiencing with each delivery at our home! I said no for the recommendation as of current until these issues can be fixed, if they were this would make an amazing fridge with great space and a great look!

Comments about GE Slate French-Door Refrigerator:



Great Refrigerator


from Michigans U.P.

Comments about GE Slate French-Door Refrigerator:

Great refrigerator, we are not sure why this model is discontinued. Great design, super nice touches with chrome . Works really nice. Is just the right size. Plenty big for anything but not too big to get in the door. Ice and water in the door just takes up too much space.


So 'not-stainless steel'!!


from Undisclosed

Comments about GE Slate French-Door Refrigerator:

It's regrettable that GE is no longer making this fridge. I'm one of those folks that HATE stainless steel (notwithstanding it's inherent qualities). I have this fridge plus the stove that comes in the same color (from GE). I've received more compliments on these appliances that ever in terms of aesthetic, style, and look. The slade color is just stunning. I'm thinking that some folks have called this 'black' stainless steel (given it's lack of silver/chrome color). In terms of performance; I've never had a problem.

So Fancy!

Comments about GE Slate French-Door Refrigerator:

This is my very first NEW fridge, and I love it! It makes me feel fancy!




from WA

Comments about GE Slate French-Door Refrigerator:

Product is not performing well. Many problems with ice maker and fresh food section will not maintain a constant temperature.




from Maui County, HI, United States

Comments about GE Slate French-Door Refrigerator:

We purchased this model November 2014. During the Christmas Holidays of that year the fridge began making a loud sound when ever the compressor came on. The "Quick Use and Care" section on Normal operating sounds says "The new high efficiency compressor may run faster and longer than your old refrigerator and you may hear a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound while it is operating." So we assume the loud compressor sound we are hearing is to be expected. This loud sound permeates our entire home. We did not expect this appliance to be so noisy as our old fridge only had low hum. As for performance, we can't complain. It maintains a proper cooling temperature and both the capacity of the fridge section and freezer section is plenty adequate for our needs. We just wish it were quieter.
